Remember Grant, the Get Prepared Stuff guy whom I may be getting a little crush on? He wrote more about the wringer, AND he's giving Good Luck Duck readers a coupon.
Grant sent me this link illustrating wringers on RV bumpers and other examples of Aussie ingenuity. He also says about the Best Hand Wringer:
In explaining the items I have available for purchase I try to set expectation so you know what you are getting. However, I've been known to talk people out of a good purchase simply because I've erred on over explaining the minuses while not explaining that the pluses could still out weigh the weaknesses.
A wringer even attached to a rather insecure bucket or tub will get enough water out of clothing to shave hours and even days off of air drying your laundry. That in and of itself could be worth it's use. My hope is that people simply understand that it's a different process to wring clothing compared to an electric washer's spin cycle and the results can be much different depending on the clothes or material being run through it, how the wringer is located, how tightly you run the rollers and how much effort you want to put into turning the handle. There are good reasons why wringers were gladly replaced by a washers spin cycle but I've not found a manual hand powered option that works any better than a wringer.
My marketing as you've seen is still a lot to be desired but I'll attempt to at least help your readers somewhat and offer a $10 discount if they purchase a wringer and rapid washer together. They will need to use Google checkout and type in: thegoodluckduck where it asks for a coupon. They would need to purchase the items from the getpreparedstuff.com site.
I'll keep the coupon active for as long as possible but if the internet coupon sites pick it up I may need to turn it off.
All the best,
-grantSo, there you go. He is also offering me a returned one in good shape for a decent discount - what should I do??
Something good may have fallen into place over the past week. I mean GOOD. It's not a done deal yet, but it's pretty close. I should go ahead and tell you, because I'm not superstitious, but that might jinx it. Better wait.
